Where conflict meets

Who can explain the dichotomy of a woman like this assisting two young woman who treat her in this way?

We are learning that altruism and empathy can be taught.  I read about this woman, Margaret E. Smith, and tears come to my eyes.  She is an inspiration.  Do we thank these young people for bringing her to our notice?   Do we feel for them because they live so unaware of human compassion and kindness?   How do we receive such news?  Where do we open now?  How is awareness feathered and fanned?
